Infuse Your Dreams With Life

 "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for 
and assurance about what we do not see"
Hebrews 11:1

Traveling, giving/volunteering for charity, debt freedom and getting married
Get to name a few dreams of mine!

I am working on your behalf
Bring me all your concerns, including your dreams
Talk with Me about everything,
Letting the Light of My Presence shine on your hopes and plans
Spend time allowing My Light to infuse your dreams with life,
gradually transforming them into reality
-Jesus Calling 12/11

This is my vision board
I have never created on before
As I have said many times in this blog, the past two years have been one big dreamfest, if you will
Once I let the Lord take over my plans, He has placed me on a path I never imagine
Then came AdvoCare which has expanded my visions and I realized I need to dream bigger!

The best part is that through dreaming big and allowing the Lord to fill His purpose
He is also changing me in the process
Changing me for His glory 
Changing me or more of preparing me for those dreams...His plans

And when I really think about my dreams, like REALLY think about them
Would I be ready for them?
Am I ready for them?

You see, the Lord knows my dreams
He knows exactly which ones He will fulfill now 
There are some that I see Him gradually beginning the process
Then there are ones I have no idea how He will ever prepare me 
Those are the ones He knows I will need some more time to prepare

That is where faith comes in
Faith He knows
Faith that He is working on my behalf
Faith that spending time will increase my hope
Faith that He will infuse my dreams with life 

Faith is having confidence in what we hope for
Confidence the Him
Confidence in our dreams and visions
Assurance that even though we don't see the Lord,
"He is working things out for the good of those who live Him"

Faith is not thinking God can, but knowing He will

Speaking of dreams,
Well, this is happening
No really, I will be going to Africa!
I am freaking out so excited and yet so scared all at once
We have dates set in June
Every detail of the trip just sounds simply amazing and divine
This is definitely something only the Lord could provide and orchestrate 
More to come later!
Some things I have been up too lately!

Christensen family Christmas party!
We traditionally get together on Dec. 27th 
However my poor cousins are being swept away to Disneyland Christmas night so we got together on the 15th. It was a Sunday which means Seahawks were playing
My aunt made a nice brunch and we got to relax all morning, open presents and hangout with this little man

Annual roommate Christmas movie night and gift exchange

Gingerbread house making for the first time!
Can you guess which one I made? :)

Hike for a cure with this little one!
Emma Joy is the sweetest little gal and you would never know she has cystic Fibrous
We could not do the annual stair climb that raises funds for CF so we conquered Tiger Mountain
It was the most beautiful day out, perfect combination of cold and sun
I dont go hiking that much but this hike was so beautiful I might have found a new hobby!
Christmas list- Washington hiking Trails! :)
